Infectious Advertising has announced the appointment of Vinu V Krishna as creative head.
Krishna moves from Nicheminds where he was creative director.
Nisha Singhania and Ramanuj Shastry, directors and co-founders, Infectious Advertising, said, "The hiring of Vinu would easily be one of the most long-drawn recruitments in the history of advertising. We interviewed him in a pub in Bangalore in 2018 and told him we liked him, and he joined Infectious in 2021. But as they say - it's better late than never. It took a pandemic and WFH to finally get a top Bengaluru writer to join us. Vinu is a fine writer, a total charmer and a bonafide rockstar (he plays the drums). I'm sure he will rock it here at Infectious."
Krishna said, "Infectious has a legacy of doing cutting-edge work in the digital space since its inception. And the culture nurtured by Ramanuj and Nisha is conducive to do clutter-breaking work. Infectious is a place where creativity, technology and data all come together to solve real business problems."
In a career spanning 15 years he has also worked with JWT, DDB and 1pointsize.
